attorneys for my campaign and for governor romney's campaign to lead it. we can fix this. and we will. the american people demand it, and so does our democracy. >> the president calling on the state of the union for a commission to improve the voting experience in america, to be led by what he called two long-time experts in the field. they are the top attorney for the president's campaign, this man, bob bauer, general counsel for the obama reelection effort. the other top attorney is this man, ben ginsberg, who served as national counsel for the mitt romney campaign in 2012. so one chairman from the democratic side, one chairman from the republican side. now in setting the commission up this way and announcing it this way, the president is clearly trying to turn fixing our national problem with voting into a bipartisan effort. he is trying to proceed here as if a story like desiline victor's pulls on everybody's heartstrings equally, democrat and republican. but what happened to desiline victor when she tried to vote this year was not an accident, it was on purpose. it was policy. fl

in the context of this play in the era of ann romney building up for his run for the white house. >> yes. i remember leading up to it, romney was not even a figure in politics that was -- i guess he had made that run in 2008, but it was not one of those things where he was the front runner. we had not even gotten to that stage yet when i opened in 2010. but i remember a "newsweek" audible coming up talking about "the year of the mormon," and it had romney' s base on it. i remember wondering if we had somehow manifested this reality, or is it: it's the adults that all of these things are converging at once and this truly is the mormon moment. i question that a little bit because it was strange. it is rare that any pop cultural event will have such crossover appeal that book of mormon had. it is even stranger that a musical, seen by 1100 people per night, gets that type of appeal. for me, it was one of those wow moments, where this was bigger than any of us thought it would be. i do not think it influenced the election in any way, and i do not think it influenced people's decision to make mit
